''The Blues Cryin' " for Beverly Matherne's poem

 

...You know it, takes me off the freeway,
     the blues does,
shoots me high, past the stars,
     to the planets,


circlin' ever so slow, oh yeah!
     You know,
I'm that Egyptian goddess, my naked body
     stretched across the sky...

''The Lizard Catchers'' for Peter Thabit Jones' poem - 2009

The Lizard Catchers - Cross-Cultural Communications, 2006

 

Tattooed on the rocks in the midday sun,
They were hieroglyphs we understood.

Behind the boy-tall grass, we slyly sat
As patient as pyramid statue-cats...

"The Object" - Homage to Aeronwy Thomas' poem.

 

It has been there some time

When I entered the room

It was already there

It seems to be of two colours

 But  then  in certain lights

It has to be three or four

Or even more

But then it appears

Almost colourless

                                                       I wouldn’t swear to it

                                                        Being coloured at all ...
